Storyline

Young Bruno lives a wealthy lifestyle in prewar Germany along with his mother, elder sister, and SS Commandant father. The family relocates to the countryside where his father is assigned to take command a prison camp. A few days later, Bruno befriends another youth, strangely dressed in striped pajamas, named Shmuel who lives behind an electrified fence. Bruno will soon find out that he is not permitted to befriend his new friend as he is a Jew, and that the neighboring yard is actually a prison camp for Jews awaiting extermination.

Movie Berry

17July 2009

Again a nice gift for those who prefer historic films. This one takes you back to the events of the Second World War. What can be more dramatic and more philosophical than the war seen with the eyes of the child? The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a very emotional film. Seeing the main characters as both humans and monsters we see internal conflict and how they each come to terms with their conflicts. Download The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas to understand the charming simplicity of the film.

Terrific02 October 2011

Everyone should see this movie, even kids, because it shows the horrors of Holocaust through children's eyes. We know what was going on, what those "striped pajamas" were, but maybe children, even Nazis' sons and daughters, really didn't realize what was happening; and thinking in these terms,... more
